In this challenge, the player on the Wii U GamePad creates Boost Blocks for the player controlling the character. The player controlling the character walks/runs across the Boost Blocks while avoiding the lava below to reach the Goal Pole. The lava will rise and fall to make the challenge more difficult. Munchers are the only enemies that appear in this challenge.
